Five Crowdfunded Travel Accessories That Deserve Your Attention

Crowdfunding has fast become the go-to solution for creators and inventors looking to raise capital to get their projects off the ground quickly. End consumers owe a lot to crowdfunding – it’s thanks to sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo that we now enjoy some iconic tech and travel products. Some might say that crowdfunding’s weakness is the risk that it carries; that products are not fully developed before being taken to market.

Why Akra Is Top Choice For One Bag Travel According To YouTube Vlogger Chase Reeves

Chase Reeves knows a thing or two about bags. As the founder of BagWorks and a YouTube channel closing in on 50,000 fans, this eccentric vlogger is the authority when it comes to Carryology. His mix of outlandish delivery and honest critiques have earned him respect from bag buyers across the interwebs.Although only a year old, his review of the Arcido Akra (at the time of writing) has more than 26,000 views. He covers every imaginable aspect of the bag, down to the minutiae. From the outset, we'll excuse Chase for mistaking the Akra for the Faroe – after all, they're both great carry on bags with similar touches, and both designed for one bag travel.Kicking off with an explanation of why you might want to purchase the Arcido Akra, Reeves briefly touches on the concept of one bag travel and how the Akra is designed to make you more travel-efficient. “Packing minimally can make for a much better trip,” he mentions – and we couldn’t agree more. He then does a wear test… as only Chase Reeves can do a wear test. The ventilated back padding, curved shoulder straps and waist strap and the “lightweight moveability” all make this a winner as a small travel backpack.
